A Truly Unique Photographic Experience... Sign me up!

This is your opportunity to visit some of the most interesting, historic, and scenic spots on the island of Newfoundland. Not just any tour. Your host photographer has circumnavigated the island of Newfoundland, by visiting the lion's share of the iconic abandoned outports - even as far north to the Torngat Mountains in coastal Labrador.

This is an eight-day tour* of places lost due to the Newfoundland resettlement program of the 1960s. As photographers our assignment will be to document glimpses into a now-vanished way of life that includes remote fishing villages, stone church ruins, shipwrecks, WWII military installations, historic airplane wrecks, even an abandoned amusement park! No tourist attractions: all of the places we'll visit are authentic abandonments.

Our journey starts in Gander, an international airport hub, where we'll travel south to the Bonavista peninsula with our ultimate destination on Fogo Island, commonly referred to as Canada's oldest settlement (1770). It is at Fogo Island where your host instructor was the first-ever Fogo Island Arts' Photographer-in-Residence (as well as the second a few months later).

Best available B&B, hotels run $100 CAD per night, most with complimentary continental breakfast. Our innkeeper on Fogo Island is offering daily accommodation including breakfast and a true Newfoundlander gourmet dinner for $200. Book early to get this accommodation rate. Upon registration, we'll inform where the group is staying so you can book ahead with confidence of securing your room. Single rooms with no single supplement. 

Start and end: Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador.

* Your own transportation is required. Subject to Covid-19, we travel in a convoy. This may change in 2022. Stay tuned for updates.

Locations: Epic locations previously visited by the instructor, several where we have permission to be at.

Skill Level: Primarily suited for intermediate photographers, beginner photographers are welcome provided that they have a basic understanding of their own camera and lenses. Sensitivity and a plan of action will be provided for all participants regarding potential learning preferences and/or insecurities, prior to the workshop. We ask the more advanced photographers to be understanding if advice seems trivial. Be forewarned: your days will be filled with laughter and memorable moments!

Organizer Pete Ryan

Organizer of Places Lost: Touring Newfoundland’s Ghost Outports

For more than 20 years photojournalist Pete Ryan has sought that which lies beyond the horizon; seeking out new experiences, landscapes, and cultures. A distinctive voice in a world of hidden narratives, he purposely ventures behind the scenes to convey the intimate and emotional stories. His approach to successful documentary photography extends from training in journalism: to tell a story incorporating truth in all its forms within a non-editorializing narrative.

His happy place is the American Midwest where he offers seasonal photo workshop tours that engage, entertain, and educate by connecting people to each other and to the landscape. A caring educator he provides an environment where people can get beyond the technical aspects of their camera and break through their creative boundaries. 

A Fellow of The Explorer’s Club, his photography is represented by National Geographic Image Collection.
